REVIEWS for my massage services

Gary was easy to talk to and honored that I am intuitive. I feel that Gary should learn to listen to people better and follow there wishes since they are paying for a service. Then again I have dealing with people that have not listened to me since I got hurt.

I usually love this place, but the new apprentice was late to set up, ruffled trying to get started and then didn’t really do what I asked for massage-wise. He asked about doing guided meditation and I said I was open, but didn’t wanna get too deep emotionally and also really did wanna relax so let’s get started and see how I felt. He never even touched my back except twice with pressure points- I stayed on my front the whole time. It was NOT a massage. He touched pressure points on the right side of my body (didn’t touch the left) and talked me through breathing... almost trying to have a therapy session asking a bunch of deep questions. I’m super into spiritual healing, but I booked a massage and genuinely was super disappointed I didn’t receive one. I booked another one at a different place the next day. Also, I mentioned twice my feet were cold and he kept uncovering them- made for some discomfort.

Gary had an excellent bedside-manner--he was very personable, warm, and non-judgmental. He listened to my concerns, validated them, and developed a meaningful treatment strategy for the session. He has an impressive working knowledge of the human musculoskeletal system and the effects of psychological trauma on the body. I appreciated his sensitivity and skill in trauma-informed care. He has a healing presence. I never would have known he was an apprentice!
